Very disappointed with this in FSX. The prop interference with autogen and clouds, and the rotor effects make is essentially unusable. However, I notice in the FSX screenshots on the GAS site the rotors don't look like mine. I also note that the prop looks much worse than any of the other GAS aircraft I have (all the Wacos, Stearman package and the D29).
I've attached some pix [edit: other pix removed] to show what I see. Is this right, and if not is there any way I can fix it?
The model is not compatible with FSX when Acceleration is used. I do not know which vendor you purchased it from, but that disclaimer should be there.
Here is how it looks in FSX unaccelerated not great but as a port over from FS9, not terrible.
Your only recourse at this point is a refund which will gladly arrange. Please e-mail me proof of purchase complete with vendor and amount paid as well as a PayPal account into which you would like the funds transferred.

A complete overhaul on the Pitcairn for FSX is contemplated, but not started. If you any further concerns please contact me directly
Glad you like them Mark Took it up for a spin and had to have a go at auto-rotation...works very well ;D
Yes, definitely a nice bird once you figure it out! I'm trying to get my landings shorter at the moment. I can't seem to get the banner-towing to work, and it would be nice if I could find a way to put the rotor brake on a button or a key, but these are minor issues in the grand scheme of things.
I have yet to find a GAS model that didn't look beautiful, and this one's surely going to star in some sort of little movie before long...
looks great, but I really want to do an FSX native version and will make it a priority after the Lockheed 12 is finished. We've learned a lot about making FSX aircraft over the last 4 projects and the Pitcairn deserves the full treatment Look forward to the instructional video.
Roger could I get a copy of the prop textures you have whipped up, I'm sure they will come in handy.
This is a FINE model by G.A.S....Unique in aviation and historical....it was Amelia Earhart ,who fully explored this crafts utility..along with altitude record,and cross country's she captured the imaginations then..On a BEECH NUT CHEWING GUM Prom tour..she thrilled towns everwhere..this now close to 80 yrs ago...attached is a wonderful story and pictures....It Would Please Amelia I think if she knew that in our Sims we fly with her..Would Like to see this in her paint.of long ago...Vin!

Yeah, it is an interesting machine when you look at the history! There is a freebie PCA-2 with a Beechnut livery, but the model's nothing like the GAS one. Mind you, when playing with Roger's prop and rotor alphas I accidentally discovered the paintwork is done as BMP files, which I successfully graffitised for my little movie. So maybe do-able as an 'amateur' job? I'd also love to see (do?) some fictional 1930s liveries...
